    Shiner bock = OK. Give these a try if you're wanting to try some fantastic beers.

    Oh my goodness!!!!

    BEER POLICE - STAT!!

    I have a store nearby called Beers of the World - each aisle has different beers from a country. Currently I'm enthralled by beers from Belgium.

    http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/1266/

    Recently discovered a high end corner store that VOILA!! has chosen to stock not only a nice selection of Belgium beers (yay!), but some unusual beers - as well as some gallon jugs from micro-breweries. I'm in heaven.

    I like a good thick dark beer, yes Guiness - but there's soooo many more offerings out there.

    3 Philosphers (great with chocolate cake btw), even Sam Adams has a Cream Stout out there that is yummy.

    One of my old bars I used to bartend at has a superb beer that is brewed for them - it's of a cream ale type - stoutish - and it's the smooooooothest most tastiest stuff.

    I also have an English Pub in the area - - and when I go there I sample all that's on tap (have to admit - I do love a HoeGaarden on tap - it's a wheat beer - but the flavor from tap is awesome - the bottled version is just nothing like it. Flavors of almost a liqourice (sp), hint of those old time candy wax bottles filled with "juice" - I love the flavor.

    This is just the bottled beer - beer menu is just that - it's a 4 page flip out freaking beer menu - nice that it describes the beers like they are a fine wine!

    Get out to some establishments and do some tastetesting!!

    Oh, and I also personally enjoy scotch - which requires a whole new thread as there are many to choose from.

    Shiner Bock is the absolute lowest I'll go. It seems to taste a lot better if served on tap than bottled. Usually, if I can, I rather have a bottle of Sam Adams, or another ale, but until I'm out of college, I'll settle for the cheap stuff, although I won't stoop to Bud or Coors.

    Time can alter our perceptions. First, you did not have a Shiner Bock Black Lager. You had a Shiner Black Lager. Bock is a style of beer, as is lager. Coors is a lager as well, which goes to explain why they might be similiar in taste.

    You need to find a micro brewery, or a pub with lots of beers on tap and sample some different styles of beer.
